Can we configure WLC (wireless controller) as DNS server

Hello Team,

 

Is there a possibility to configure  WLC -2500 as a DNS serer.  We have a network dedicated to access only one address  https://.ABC.net located in the office server. We have the same setup on several offices, and we would like to keep  the same DNS address ABC.net. 

 

Can we configure WLC to act as DNS server and convert ABC.com  to the remote server IP address.

 

 

I attempted to map dns address to an IP address on cisco router but it didn't work, any suggestion will be greatly appreaciated.

 

 

p domain lookup
ip dns server
ip host vrf AAA  www.ABC.net 192.168.1.2

You can configure as DHCP Server, but as  DNS SERVER you cant.

Thank you Jaderso,I dindn't  find anythinkabout DNS  features

Tsevya1, as i said, wlc doesn't support dns server.

You can create it using windows server or linux, it is the better way.

Not going to work.
If you want a cheap DNS server, get a Raspberry Pi.
